Publisher's Summary

Orphaned by Monsters. Matt must power up to save others from the same fate.

Matt plans to delve the rifts responsible for the monsters that destroyed his city and murdered his parents. But his dreams are crushed when his Tier 1 Talent is rated as detrimental and no guild or group will take him.

Working at a nearby inn, he meets a mysterious and powerful couple. They give him a chance to join the Path of Ascension, an empire-wide race to ascend the Tiers and become living legends.

With their recommendation and a stolen Skill, Matt begins his journey to the peak of power. Maybe then, he can get vengeance he seeks....

Experience the start of an action-packed fantasy adventure that blends everything you love about LitRPG with Xianxia. With five million views on Royal Road, this hit web serial is new and improved and now available.

About the series: This is a mix between LitRPG and Xianxia. It's like a car that looks like a LitRPG with dungeons and skills, but the interior and engine are all Xianxia. It features a magic system and progression system that are logically and internally consistent, as well as realistic fight scenes and a rational MC.

Good story and likeable characters

I really like underdog stories, especially ones that don’t get crazy strong straight away. Characters are likeable and looking forward to the next book.

Too bogged down in crunching


Interesting story and world building but its often interrupted by repetative skill descriptions, minute breakdowns of stats, etc. It slows the pace to a standstill and i got bored of skipping. Many, many info dumps.

I might finish it at some point but am exhausted by it atm. I have read much litRPG but this one isnt to my taste.

good concept, well executed.

A few silly occasions that maybe resonates more with a younger reader but overall a decent listen. I dont think you would regret the purchase.

[SKILL NAME HERE]

Very enjoyable story, having to be jarred out of it every minute or so with the cut and paste robotic skill names almost made me drop a few times. Hopefully the next narration isn't as jarring

Fun story

I really enjoyed this story, great characters, paced well and created an interesting universe, I'm looking forward to the next book.
Only thing I would change is how the skill names presented as it breaks the flow of the fights when multiple skills are used.

Like a black hole, it sucks you in

A really, really enjoyable book. It starts with Matt, an ordinary orphan on a low tier world, however as he learns to overcome his detrimental rating and turn it into positives, he finds friendship and understanding in unlikely companions, and they help him to become a stronger version of himself! Looking forward to listening to more from this storyline and author!
